BoomWriter

BoomWriter is a site I've covered numerous times in the past and a company I have the pleasure of working with.  This is a fantastic free site for educators that allows students to create a digital story/book in a safe environment.  It's a really innovative site that is super easy to use, where a teacher creates a student account (ideal for education and CIPA compliance), and then students build a story off a story starter (either from a pre-selected one or built from scratch).  Each student then writes/types the next chapter and then votes individually on which chapter they would like to see included in the finished product.  This process continues until the story is done and an actual physical book can be ordered.  Right now each teacher that signs up gets one free class copy (shipping included)... http://www.boomwriter.com/home/Schools

Recently, the Chicago Public Schools completed their 50 school trial Technology Heroes Program and 96% of teachers stated the BW was an effective teaching tool and 94% stated they would use BW again w/ their class.  More info on how to join the Technology Heroes program and get a free book for each teacher and class go here... http://www.boomwriter.com/Home/TechnologyHeroes

Also, BoomWriter is lucky to be working w Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series to bring a online Summer Camp to students to help prevent learning loss and strengthen Reading & Writing skills during the summer.  Use this code... BWCamp10 to get $10 off when signing up... http://www.boomwriter.com/Summercamps
